Kinako Linzer Cookies

Kinako is probably one of the most used dessert ingredients in Japan. Its unique golden hue and distinct nutty aroma reminds me of a ohagi that I’ve had once in Japan. If you recall one of my recent recipes, Sesame Caramel Kinako Butterscotch Bars, I used kinako as a supplementary flavour alongside the more pronounced black sesame.

But there’s something I Iove about raspberry and rhubarb. The floral notesRead more

Roasted Strawberry Pound Cake

I love a good pound cake. Though I don’t recall when the last time I made one so good that I wanted to make again. I remember as a child when frozen food became increasingly popular, I’d see Sara Lee’s pound cake on TV commercials. Packaged in a disposable foil loaf pan and a striking redRead more
